Our economy has changed. No longer can students graduate with a degree and find work in their field. Mature workers are being laid off and downsized. No longer is there "job security" in the corporate structure.
Statistics indicate that a growing number of graduates cannot find work in their field, despite their degrees and the tremendous burden of their student loans. Outstanding student debt in the U.S. is over 1 Trillion dollars. It's common for students to carry loan payments of $500-$1,000+ per month.
Many have settled for jobs in restaurants and retail, just to pay their debt, causing many young people in their 20's to move back in with family. We have a generation of young people that are frustrated and have lost hope.
What has worked in education over the years, is not working for today's changed world. We must provide our young people, and mature workers alike, with the knowledge and confidence to be self reliant. We must stop teaching individuals to rely on government and corporations to provide work for them, instead, teach them to be self reliant leaders. This is one of the greatest gifts we can provide to meet the needs of the 21st century.
We have the solution.
